    I'm fine with the ability to change difficulties on the fly in most cases, but an Ironman mode is the exception to that. Not every mode of every game has to be for everyone. If you want a mixture of both, pretend that the units killed in non-Ironman mode are dead forever (or until you decide you want them back).

    Yeah, I'd make an exception for Ironman.

    But Fire Emblem doesn't have an Ironman mode.

    Isn't that basically what classic is, in Fire Emblem?

    Well, I guess you can reset and start again from the very beginning of the mission. So it's sort of an ironman-lite, I guess.

    Very light. The whole point of Ironman is that you start over from the beginning of the game or not at all.

    So 538.com analyzed Twitch Plays Pokemon? Something about this is very unsettling.

    What the flip it's only part one

    e: Wait no it isn't but there's way more stuff on this channel related to Smash Direct to listen to/watch

    This'll probably keep me busy for the next couple of hours

    Takes a little time to seize the day. I saw Vinny, Drew and Brad walk by but couldn't react fast enough. Found Patrick in my hotel and I was like "Is that... is it... it is!". Shook his hand, said I was a big fan, and apologized for sleeping during his panel.

    True, I guess I only got to talk to them when they had stopped to do something else, or were in a big circle already I could sidle into. Maybe if Drew had been on a panel I'd have felt more okay with talking to him.

    I assume sleeping in his panel meant you had just gotten into Boston on Friday afternoon? If it helps, I wanted to go to that panel too, but I didn't make it to the convention center because I fell asleep in my hotel room. Woke up at like 11, didn't know the area, ended up eating Oreos for dinner. Turns out there's a badass jazz club a block away from the MidTown Hotel where I was staying, so I got super bummed I didn't know it was there.

    I guess that's kind of the bummer of PAX

    If that's your first time going to the area and you're only there for that weekend, you really only have time to be at PAX and not actually seeing the city that much

    Holy shit Garrisons are designed to destroy me:

    While you can attract "generic" followers to your town, certain questgivers will ask to move in if you complete their questline.

    You are given the land by Durotan and frequently come back to it through the 90-100 leveling process, it is a key part of the storyline.

    Your Garrison can come under attack by NPC enemy factions you have angered, which you will have to repel with your followers.

    Yup. Though my 2nd night after I got back to the hotel from the GB panel madness, I found out there was a Cheesecake Factory like 2 blocks away that was open late, so I went there to grab food. And I had been up since 11PM the night before, with only a few times "nodding off" on the floor of PAX.

    Next time, maybe I'll try to come in a day early/stay a day late, though it's certainly not cheap. Especially if I follow through on my plans to get a closer hotel next time.

    I can only remember two crits in FE that were really bad. one when I was leveling raven on the general who had 1% crit which was kind of my fault because eventually the dice are not going to go your way, and the second time when I got crit by a same turn reinforcement where there is absolutely nothing you can do about and points more to the idiocy of same turn reinforcements than crits.

    My two greatest GB related regrets of PAX were missing the royal rumble, I don't even know what the fuck I was thinking.

    And needing to run out of the GB panel because my phone was dead and I needed to hook up with my group, preventing me from pitching the idea of a rhythm based beach frisbee game to John Drake in person. Sling hot discs in tune to music, release on the beat to keep up momentum.

    You might even say you are jamming. To the music, I mean.

    Just got through my first mission on Enemy Within Classic Ironman. I lost no one! Also I'm digging the languages for soldiers.

    Here's Chincy and Ceno, the two people to volunteer. I'll Change Ceno's name to a nickname assuming the solider lasts that long. Either that or I need a first or last name for Ceno. Those two got picked since they both got 3 kills and promoted!

    I was wondering why people were leaving before Q and A. I guess that's enough of a reason, though someone at the panel pitched #SodaDaterPro and got a potential hookup with Max Temkin and Dave Lang.

    Pope says if they ever do it again, he's gonna make sure the Rumble isn't first thing the morning. Considering that the GB panel ran long this year, making both was ROUGH.

    edit: Also, my mom made me pack one of those battery packs in my bag, so when my phone inevitably died I had extra charges and could use my phone. It was perfect and was exactly what I needed for a con like this.
